My dad is loving his new life at University Village. It's what retirement living is all about-- all of his needs are met, so he has the time to enjoy a carefree and active lifestyle. And when I say active, I mean ACTIVE. There's stuff to do there 24/7, and it's a great bunch of energetic residents to do things with. I think it's like summer camp, but with MUCH nicer bunks. And it's only about 10 minutes drive away from us, so we see him all the time.
Needless to say, when he invited me to the Resident's Quilt Show I jumped at the chance to go. I know there's an active crafting community there, and I figured there would be some interesting quilts to see. And there were!
I've never heard of this in all my years of quilting!
this post). This was the first time one of my quilts has ever been displayed at a show like this, so I was pretty excited to see it there.
I'm no expert, but I did think this quilt was museum quality work. Truly amazing.
Is there a little voice saying to you right now, "Gosh, that baby looks familiar"?
There should be. You know that baby. We all do.
Holy cow, it's Ann Turner Cook, The Gerber Baby!
She's 85 and my dad's neighbor at University Village.
I certainly never expected to meet an American Icon at the quilt show!
